The Federation of Factorim is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 3.048 billion Factorimites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MainSteam. The average income tax rate is 21.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Factorimian economy, worth 157 trillion Factors a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,813 Factors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Sparrow, and Factorim has designated MainSteam as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Factorim's national animal is the Sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Factorim is ranked 50,554th in the world and 1,687th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 68 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
